Charred body found in burnt car on Crete

Police on Crete were seeking to determine on Wednesday the exact cause of death of a man aged around 60 whose charred remains were found in his car near the coastal port of Kissamos in the island’s northwest late on Tuesday.

Police and a local coroner both ruled out foul play in connection with the death of the man whose body was found hanging out of the driver’s door of the vehicle.

A resident alerted police shortly after 11 p.m. on Tuesday after seeing the car in flames.
